    Help extracting/ripping/converting a flash video of my daughter


    So over the past few years I had two daughters. The hospital compelled us into these uber-priced newborn packages and my elder daughter had hers placed on a cd. It was in dvd format and I was able to browse and pull/convert the video collage from vob.

    My youngest daughter had hers (from the same company) come on a usb stick. The stick has some kind of integrated flash player/executable that runs the video. I'm having trouble finding where its getting the data from so I can pull just the video out for backup/easy viewing digitally etc.

    Anyone versed in this sort of thing willing to help out if I upload it somewhere? its ~60mb but I imagine the actual video data is a fraction of that.

    kind of off-topic for a windows forum but wasnt sure where else to ask. It was this or reddit :P

    Well I just made a self running exe video;

    MakeInstantPlayer 1.60 Free Download - VideoHelp

    It plays in Mplayer (provided in exe)

    I can extract the video from the executable using 7-zip.

    If you can't figure out how - upload the executable here:

    Fast & Simple File Transfers - FileTransfer.io

    Then send me the link and I will try to extract the video. (No guarantee of success)

    here is the link. I tried using 7z > extract. Tried converting the swf file i "thought" could be related in after affects, no bueno. Normally i can muscle through and figure this stuff out but this one has me beat. If you do manage, be sure to let me in on the m/o so god forbid i run up against something like this in the future for some reason I can handle it :P

    It's not a video. It's a slideshow of images set to music. If you like I can try making it into a playable video.

    ah yes, i didnt make the distinction. Perhaps because the other one (on cd) was in dvd format and already a video file.

    It would be great if you can somehow make it into a video. Format is irrelevant as i can handle the conversion. Appreciate it very much!

    Thank you a ton! How did you do it? did you just run it and then use some kind of screen capture/recording software or something?

    Also, could I get you to edit that out now that I have it downloaded? Its got my kids name and birthdate in there, probably harmless but you never know :P

    If you mean edit the link - I removed it. You should delete the quote in your last post. If you mean edit the video then it would require other software to obscure the details. Yes I used screen capture to create a video. It's not extractable from the file you uploaded because it's a slideshow and not a video.
